slide2

Evaluation of Computational Methods for the Low Elevation Haines Index.

Potential Future Changes in the Atmospheric Component of Fire Risk.

Haines Index Climatology using the North American Regional Reanalysis

slide4

A modular modeling system that enables fire information, consumption, and smoke modeling.

Lesley Fusina, Sharon Zhong. Jay Charney and Xindi Bian

Evaluate model predictions of smoke using observational data from the October 2007 Southern California Wildfire outbreaks. The results indicate that while smoke models can currently predict smoke trajectories, the timing of smoke impacts and predictions of ground concentrations need improvement.

Investigating the differences between the gridded meteorological fields produced by the Real Time Mesoscale Analysis (RTMA) and observed meteorological conditions at Remote Automated Weather Stations (RAWS) in the northeastern United States.

The differences will be analyzed and tools developed to improve the interpretation of NWS fire weather forecasts and clarify their role in fire management decision making.
